The Kindle is one of the most popular devices on the market, especially in education. We talk about apps available for the Kindle and other devices on a regular basis, but it’s important to remember that the Kindle is above all, an e-reader, and that’s where the device can really shine. And while free apps abound, books for e-readers are rarely free. While they may be cheaper in their digital versions than in print, it can still add up if you like to read – and even more so if you’re trying to build a library for your students.
And what do you know – in our internet travels, we came across a great site that offers free Kindle books. One Hundred Free Books offers exactly what it says it does – A hundred books for your Kindle that you can download for free.
The list of available books is constantly changing, and as new books are added, others are taken off the list. You can search the database of available books by keyword or title, or browse by genre. There is also a section of the newest free books, so you don’t have to keep searching through lots of things you’ve already seen. And if you’re keen on making sure that you don’t miss anything, you can even subscribe to their service (it’s free) and they let you know what titles become free as it happens.
It can be a good way for you to get some free books for yourself, for a student in your house, or even for your classroom! Books are always great, but free Kindle books are even better!
